Reviews

"Crisp, taut, and as clear as a bell ... a fascinating story with many a beguiling subplot along the way." * New Scientist * "The story of how [the alphabet] came into being is a fascinating one and Man is the ideal writer to tell it. His scholarship seems boundless... he also has a journalist's ear for a story... straight out of Indiana Jones" * Times Educational Supplement * "Absorbing tale ... many surprises on the way." * Sunday Telegraph * "A scholarly and fascinating history of the alphabet, from hieroglyphics to letters, and its dissemination from culture to culture and from past to present" * The Times *
